In the special case in which a wave incident upon an aperture is plane or spherical, U(G) (P) represents a wave propagated in accordance with the laws of geometrical optics (see Ref. 11).

For mathematical convenience, the transmittance on the edge of an aperture was changed from that discussed in Sec. I to the transmittance shown in Figs. 4 or 5. Hence, for the one-dimensional case, the transmittance on the edge Γ may be defined as limy→+y1T in the first term of Eq. (14).
The comment, "A boundary diffraction wave may be thought of as arising from the scattering of the incident radiation by the boundary of the aperture," is found in Ref. 8, p. 452.
